Gujarat civic polls: Test for PM Modi, CM Anandiben as counting begins

India TV News Desk [ Updated: December 21, 2015 1:08 IST ]

Counting for the votes in Gujarat civic polls, first major elections in the state after Anandiben Patel took over from Narendra Modi as Chief Minister, is underway.

BJP is confident of a victory despite the Patidar protests.

Early trends show BJP having a slight edge over Congress in Vadodara, Rajkot and Surat.

The polls are dubbed a test for the ruling BJP, coming against the backdrop of violence-ridden Patel quota protests and the party's crushing defeat in the Bihar assembly election.
